Hello,

I have a quick question as I've never seen this on OMSI but been told It can be done by the .hof file

Is there a way to add two destination to the board at the same time? example, Go Ahead London then changes to London City then goes back to Go Ahead London and and so on

I only know the basics of the .hof file

I guess you mean as in a slide show, where it just advances between two slides on a loop. That is possible, however not on the C400R as far as I'm aware. I know the Krueger+ displays can, but this one is trying to mimic a Hannover display which can do this in the real world, but the OMSI implementation isn't capable of this.

Should be possible to mod that onto this, but it'll be a complex project :/

It is possible, however not possible to explain in one forum post.

I believe there's a guide on how to add it to unsupported buses somewhere in the documentation.

As you can see, it's very much worth it if you can work it out.

I'm aware of that. That's why I'm saying we should mod the bus to support the Krueger+ display type. Really not a fan of the current Hannover and Mobitec implementations people are insisting on.

People are insisting on them, because that is what the Enviro400 supports in reality.

Probably shouldn't repost here then, but I gave a brief description of how it could work in the WIP B7RLE Eclipse Urban thread.

Here's the official wording on the Krueger+ page about making it work on other vehicles:

I won't be doing any more work on this mod, but if you want, you can make a version to work on another bus and distribute it!
The main step is to make the bus use the relevant textures for its matrix display in some way.

In the original game's Krüger matrix, the relevant textures are, in order,
  • vmatrix_leer.bmp (ID 0)
  • vmatrix_leer.bmp (ID 1)
  • vmatrix_voll.bmp
The above will adapt both the original matrix and the Krüger+ flip-disc matrix to that bus.

For the high-resolution LED version, the relevant textures are, again in order,
  • vmatrix_leer_led.png
  • vmatrix_voll_led_h030s1.dds
  • vmatrix_voll_led_h120s1.dds
  • vmatrix_voll_led_h210s1.dds
  • vmatrix_voll_led_h300s1.dds
  • vmatrix_voll_led_h000s0.dds
(The textures MUST be in this order for the colour mixing to work correctly!)

Then, the model configuration file(s) must be updated accordingly.

Finally, you may need to adapt the matrix script to your target bus, to make the script compatible.
Good luck!!

I'm sure that someone cleverer than I can work out what to do with this information, but I've wanted to make this available to more buses for a long time now, I don't drive much without it.

Again that requires scripting changes which not many people can do as its quite advanced

That's the spirit! I'd try it myself, but I just keep getting confused about it. It seems it's easiest on buses that support the default OMSI Krueger display, so the Cito might be the best place to practice. Would be great to eventually get it working on the D92 though...

And of course, the RHD vehicles, once someone gets good at conversion.

That's absolutely marvellous. If you can get this to work, then you probably become the destination legend, or something...
